One of the worst kept secrets in the park’s history, the Disney Skyliner gondola system was officially announced during the D23 Expo earlier this month. The new transportation system will connect several Epcot area resorts to Epcot and Hollywood Studios.

Disney’s Riviera is a new Disney Vacation Club resort that will connect to the Skyliner system.

There’s been no official opening date for either project.
